Google Just Changed Search Results for ‘Jihad’, ‘Sharia’ and ‘Taqiyya’

Queries about Islam and Muslims on the world’s largest search engine have been updated amid public pressure to tamp down alleged disinformation from hate groups.

However, activists who have worked to bring about the changes say more work remains.

In the past, users on Google seeking information about the religion or its adherents would be presented prominently with what many criticized as propaganda from hate groups.

That has recently changed.

Google’s first page results for searches of terms such as “jihad”, “shariah” and “taqiyya” now return mostly reputable explanations of the Islamic concepts. Taqiyya, which describes the circumstances under which a Muslim can conceal their belief in the face of persecution, is the sole term to feature a questionable website on the first page of results.

    Some terms are difficult to sanitise, like “Mufa’ Khathat”

      Does Mufa Khathat mean low-fat blueberry muffin?

    Just removed google & tried it with bing. It’s a bit better. At least some anti- Jihad & sharia sites were on the first page. It took 3 pages for any to come up on google

      Bing is every bit as bad as Google. The Big Tech companies are One World Government to their very core.

      Try for a search engine that doesn’t track you and doesn’t feed you steaming turds gussied up as Chipotle sammiches.

        I was using Bing but have just switched to DuckDuckGo also.

        I use Duck Duck Go as well.

    Clearly Google knows the meaning of Taqiyya and is a believer in it.
